Leslie received her Bachelors degree from the StateUniversity at Oswego and her Masters degree in Social Work from the State University at Albany.

She also trained staff on the social and emotional needs of the residents, held resident support groups, and parent support groups and participated on theHuman Rights Committee for the agency.

Leslie moved to Ithaca in 1989 and began working for the Franziska Racker Centers (formally the Special Children's Center) as a preschool social worker in their preschool special education classroom in Owego, New York. ​She was asked to join
the Center's evaluation team where she participated as an evaluator for children with social and emotional concerns. In 2001 she was selected to participate in an innovative program with the Department of Social Services to facilitate family group conferences for families whose children were at risk for placement in foster care. At the same time she began to provide social work services for preschool children through the Tompkins County Early Intervention program and through local school districts in Tompkins county.

In 2004 she left the Franziska Racker Centers to start Life Stages Counseling. She​​​​has extensive training in working with young children and has been providing counseling/play therapy services to children and their families for over fifteen years. Leslie's areas of expertise include parenting education and support, early childhood development, children with special needs, and step-parenting.

I am a NYS Licensed Clinical Social Worker and provide counseling services for children, teens and young adults with emotional and behavioral challenges. My work utilizes a combination of behavior therapy, cognitive behavior therapy, play therapy, life skills development, mindfulness and stress reduction. I also provide short-term counseling for area Employee Assistance Programs for adults and their families.

I offer brain training neurofeedback for ADHD (including a comprehensive assessment). Neurofeedback can treat symptoms of inattention, distractibility, impulsivity and hyperactivity. Children 6 years thru adulthood can benefit. In 2012 the American Academy of Pediatrics labeled neurofeedback a "Level 1 -Best Support" intervention for ADHD. I can assist clients with insurance reimbursement.

Above all, you will find an unconditional respect and appreciation for you as an individual, your inherent greatness, and a reverence for sharing the journey of life. My approach to therapy is to create a space that draws upon my professional and personal experience which allows you to feel safe and supported without judgment. With compassion and kindness I will help you examine your life and identify the events and patterns that have kept you from having the life you desire. I will be honest, direct, and I will caringly challenge you as a way to encourage self analysis and exploration. I have had extensive training in meditation, relaxation techniques and mindfulness practices and offer these as additional opportunities for personal growth.

You are your greatest resource. I believe that through the power of the therapeutic process you can identify solutions to the things that trouble you. I will work with you to find healing, acceptance, and the freedom to be happy and at peace.
